    [Guide] How to Enable PS3 & 360 Controllers for Vindictus.

    XP Users! For some steps refer to Italics. Vista & 7 users follow guide normally!

    Before we get started you will need the following Items:

    PS3 Users:
    • Mini-USB to USB Cable
    MotionJoy


    360 Users:
    • 360 Wireless Reciever / 360-USB Cable
    Drivers


    PS3 Controller:
    • Reboot & press F8 until an Advanced menu appears. Select “Disable Driver Signature Enforcement”
    XP users please refer to this guide

    • Install MotionJoy & plugin your controller
    • Open the program “DS3 Tools” & Click Driver Manager
    • Select Load driver & allow it to install
    Now Windows will see the controller in Controller configurations, but to use it with vindictus we aren’t done yet.

    • Select the Xbox360 Emu option and click Enable
    If Your on Windows 7 or Vista there will be another driver installed automatically, XP users don’t worry. To see if everything is dandy click “Game Controller Panel” in DS3 Tools. It should say something like “Controller (xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows)” Click properties & the controller should be responsive. Right now would be a good idea to Calibrate it.

    • Load up Vindictus & go into Advanced Options, then click Xbox 360 in the list of of Controllers

    PS3 Layout:
    • Triangle – Strong attack (D)
    • Square – Light Attack (S)
    • X – Guard/Dodge (A)
    • Circle – Loot/ES Move (W)
    • L2 Trigger – Secondary Weapon (Shift)
    • Left Analog – Character Movement (WSAD/Arrows)
    • Right Analog – Camera Movement (Q)
    • Left Directional – HP Potions (1)
    • Up Directional – Feathers (2)
    • Right Directional – Slot 3 (3)
    • Bottom Directional – Slot 4 (4)

    If you did everything properly then all the lights on the controller should be solid!



    360 Controller Users:

    • Install the appropriate driver according to the type of controller you have (Using wireless/Wired) and your Operating System then restart your computer.
    • Plugin the controller & Windows should automatically pick it up in the game controller list. In Windows Vista & 7 just search “Controllers” in your start menu.
    XP users go to your control panel then select “Printers and other Hardware” then Select “Game Controllers” Now You will want to Calibrate the controller, so select Calibrate from the list.
    • Load Vindictus & Select the 360 Controller Layout from advanced options.
    Much easyier then PS3 that’s for sure.

    360 Layout:
    • Y – Strong attack (D)
    • X – Light Attack (S)
    • A – Guard/Dodge (A)
    • B – Loot/ES Move (W)
    • LT Trigger – Secondary Weapon (Shift)
    • Left Analog – Character Movement (WSAD/Arrows)
    • Right Analog – Camera Movement (Q)
    • Left Directional – HP Potions (1)
    • Up Directional – Feathers (2)
    • Right Directional – Slot 3 (3)
    • Bottom Directional – Slot 4 (4)


    If you feel like anything is missing in this guide feel free to say so! Thanks.

      I use a PS3 controller for Vindictus and I thought it might help some to point out a program called "Xpadder."

      You can use Xpadder to easily remap the button layout and adjust the up and down and left and right sensitivity of the analog sticks.

      MotionJoy has Mapping in its configuration already, Plus... Your on XP I take it? W7 & Vista is an entire different story when it comes to compatibility.

      Yup, I use Xpadder as well it is pretty good. I did not like motion joy that much, but I highly recommend Xpadder.

      Unfortunately I don't think there's any option in game to config sensitivity for controllers..
      I personally used a program called JoyToKey before to config my xbox controller playing other games.
      I've used that with vindictus only to add f12 to start button so far.
      But If you want to spend time to play around with the settings you should give it a try.

      that program allows simulation of mouse movement and sensitivity.. I believe it should be able to fix ur problem

      If you use the custom mapping on motionjoy you can also make it so that the start, select, and PSbutton act as F12, F11, and Esc. Pretty nice for those that don't want to extend their arm. As well I find it better if the the secondary weapon was mapped to R1 as I find it more responsive given it's position. Then having L2 and R2 as SPswap and SP skill.

      My Cpu cant recognize my controller i dont know why ..... my controller cant connect to my cpu i dont know what to do plz HELP ME !!!! :(

      SirPsycho you'll need a specific driver for your controller. Google your controller and look for its drivers, follow the instructions and reboot computer. Your controller should be working

      Thanks for the guide! I've wanted to play Vindictus with a controller for a while now, +Rep!
      I thought it would be really complicated, but it was very simple :D I got everything all set up and it works~ I let out a nerdy squeal when I got it to work, LOL.

      Would this work for a PS2 controller? I have an adapter for it but never tried to use it for Vindictus.

      I was wondering...by 360 wireless, you mean just the normal wireless controller but one of those wireless sensor things?

      All the buttons on my ps3 controllers work includding the d-pad, but both my right and left analog stick aren't working for some reason. I tried calibrating it but the bars are not moving when I move my analog sticks around

      edit:

      OK Nevermind I got it to work, I had to restart MotionJoy and Then I could enable the Playstation 3 controller profile.

      The only thing is, now I can't get the look up and look down to work on my up and down R Analog stick. :(

      You'd need a wireless receiver to use your wireless 360 controller on the PC, unless you buy a PC Compatible wired controller. As the play N charge kit doesn't do anything but charge.

      Pyro: Try going into configuration manually, or re-calibrate controller in windows
